Mandola Our handcrafted mandolas pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles while delivering a balanced and refined tone.
Setting the Standard A bluegrass icon, and for good reason. F-style or Florentine mandolas are the epitome of fine craftsmanship and beauty. The ornate carved scroll adds mass to the instrument that helps create balance for a standing player.
Find your place in the mix Known for having more treble attack and percussive "chop" than oval hole instruments, F-hole mandolas are the first choice in ensemble settings where volume competition can be an issue.
All of our stringed instruments are built in workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftsmen.
